The Grint! Tour Season 3: Race To Sand Hills

PapaJohickPapaJohick ShortKnocker BombsCharleston, SCMembers Posts: 4,475 ✭✭
Hey everyone!



I am super jacked about this upcoming season. The first two were so much fun and this year should be better. As of now, I do plan on having an actual outing this year! A small stay and play for 3 days or so in the sand hills of NC. Now in order to do this, I will need a realistic headcount in order to make it happen. The sites will be Tobacco Road, Tot Hill, and a third option possibly. It will more than likely be in the warmer season (thinking possibly August or September). If we can get at least 8 people that would be awesome, but if we can get 12 or so, we can certainly do something pretty cool. Especially with how the app can do live scoring/tournaments and what not. Any way!



If you would like to be a part of this year's tour please send me a PM. Even if you were a part of it last year please do this. If I don't get a PM I am going to clear those who do not. Please include your First and Last name, Grint ID, and location. This will help us make sure the right person is added.



Here are the general guidelines for the Club and Events:



1. All members must be golfwrx members interested in fun monthly events to unite us across the the country.



2. Honesty on scoring is a must! We are depending on you to be honest, and for you to realize that you are not and never will be a professional golfer. We think you're cool though, which counts for something.



3. You may play from any tee you desire, but again, please be honest and choose the tee you normally would/should play.



4. Keep score to the best of your ability according to the rules of golf when posting your monthly event scores. This is for fun, but please no mulligans, try to putt everything out, etc.



5. You may use only one combined 9 hole scores for events. The other recorded round of the month must be 18. Again, be big boys and girls and do this with integrity. No reason to cheat the system.



6. Rounds must be elected event rounds before the round begins (via app. If you do not know how to choose this, please ask!). Do not quit tracking halfway through because you feel it's not going well.



7. Players need to track stats along the rounds through the app. Tie-breakers are dealt with stats such as putts, GIR, FIR, Grints, etc.



8. The chairman and vice chairman (DarthMaduro/CigarNate) have the right to put in place any new rule/regulation they see fit to keep the club happy and running smoothly.



9. There will be Two Events a month that are compiled of one round each. Season runs from March-October (16 total rounds). Events will start the first day of the month and run to the last day of the month. The highest 8 rounds will be dropped and lowest 8 rounds will be used for scoring. Scoring will be total score for the year.



10. If posting Event Rounds here with pictures/scores, please try to remember to state what event it is and which round (ie: March/Round 1)



11. Have fun!!





DISCLAIMER: This club has in no way shape or form any endorsement, agreement, or formal association with the GolfWRX website, its staff, or its sponsors.

    Gentlemen,



    Trip has been set up! I am trying to see if maybe one more round could be added, but will see. Now with this being the first ever live event of our Tour, it is smallish. I am trying to test the waters and see how much interest goes with this one. If we can at least get people here, then we can try and make them a little better each time. I'm willing to put in the work to plan these things, but it's up to yall to commit and actually do it. Now onto the details,



    Event: WRXWeb Tour Championship 2019

    Location: Southern Pines, NC

    Dates: August 23/24, 2019

    Courses: Mid-Pines and Tobacco Road

    Cost: $320 per person

    *Cost includes one night stay at the Best Western, one round of golf at each course, and entry Fee (this fee will cover some type of comp. either prizes/skins/etc)

    Format: Still Deciding. If we get even numbers and at least 8-10, then maybe a team format could be done...... Will be handicapped though appropriately.

    Prizes: working on it, but just so yall know, the prizes won't have to do with who wins or loses. It is about fun



    Obviously don't need a firm answer now, but I want people to mark it down and look at trying to make it happen. I will bump this post every now and then to remind yall. If I don't have enough people to sign up before a certain date, it won't be happening.

    Papa...the Southern Pines event is SO exciting. I'll try and work it out where if I can be there our company will help sponsor a prize. It's only fitting with it being Tobacco Road after all image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Here are the general guidelines for the Club and Events:

    [...]

    6. Rounds must be elected event rounds before the round begins (via app. If you do not know how to choose this, please ask!). Do not quit tracking halfway through because you feel it's not going well.

    [...]




    Posted my first tour round today. I really wish rule #6 didn't exist because I had two nightmare holes that I wish I could hide from the world image/fool.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':fool:' />




    9. There will be Two Events a month that are compiled of one round each. Season runs from March-October (16 total rounds).

Scoring will be total score for the year.




    @Papa Johick, how do you track this? Do you keep a running spreadsheet or does the Grint have a feature that helps? If it's the former, I've made my fair share of Google Sheets and would be happy to help build a simple, publicly visible sheet that is updated monthly. Also happy to sit back and shut up.



    On a completely separate note, I am dying to know how the Grint calculates "points" per round. I know we are not using it, but it is bugging me that I can't figure it out. It's probably so simple that I'm just looking past it.



  • PapaJohickPapaJohick ShortKnocker Bombs Charleston, SCMembers Posts: 4,475 ✭✭
    Haha I’ve been there with rule 6. Plenty of rounds last year I was doing ok and just messed the bed.



    I have a running spreadsheet in excel that works so far, but if you want to send me what you’re thinking I’m always up to see if there is anything that makes it easier. PM me and I’ll send you my email.



    Points wise? I have no idea how or what the points mean haha. It’s something I can set for each month/event but since I don’t use it for anything, I don’t mess with it. If this was a legitimate competition for best scores/overall season play it would be a little helpful (kind of like fed ex points haha)
